Message From Past State President Rudy Masi About The Vets Parade of Heroes Tampa Airport Welcome Home Tribute

Greetings Florida Elks,


A reminder that this year’s veterans will be returning from our Parade of Heroes event to Tampa Airport, Sunday afternoon, November 13th, 2:44PM, after our Midyear Convention and we are asking for your support.


We would like a rowdy, loud crowd with signs and USA flags to welcome our veterans home. All of the veterans love the welcome home, and this is especially true for our Viet Nam War veterans who are deeply moved.   We return to Tampa on November 13, American Airlines Flight # AA2899 at 2:44PM.

Please write a thank you note or a thank you for your service card for a veteran that can be passed out during the trip. 

Please mail the cards/letters by November 5 to:

Mary Lou Scribner

11132 Sailbrooke Drive

Riverview, FL 33579 


Thank you very much!


Rudy Masi, Sr.

PSP/Historic Programs Liaison
